We are cancelling all the April Lodge Meetings in accordance with the Governor’s ban of all gatherings. We will continue to monitor and make necessary changes to future Local Lodge meetings as the situation evolves.
We have requested and received permission from the International for special dispensation to cancel April’s Local Lodge meetings and defer nomination and elections of delegates to the IAM 40th Grand Lodge Convention. At this point, we will move nominations and elections to May and June respectively and will keep you apprised of any future changes.
We are currently pouring through the CARES Act signed into law last Friday to see how expanded Unemployment provisions might impact our members in various situations. Our hope is once those provisions are finalized our members will have more options to cover time away from work, if necessary, than are available now. We will keep you updated as we learn more on this.
